We’ve designed the BTEC First (NQF) qualifications to inspire and enthuse level 2 learners to become
technology savvy – producers of technology products and systems and not just consumers. They provide learners with:
- an understanding and knowledge of how organisations in the information technology and creative technology industries operate
- the key skills required to work in these industries
- key concepts and principles related to the world of information and creative technologies
These qualifications are about making information and creative technology-based products and/or systems. Retaining many of the characteristics from the existing BTEC Level 2 Firsts in Information Technology (QCF), this new suite of level 2 qualifications will provide a broad, solid foundation for progression to Level 3 and employment in the IT or creative technology sectors.
